George Lucas of Stars Wars fame put the city on the map as a center for the entertainment industry, with its focus on animation and cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology.

San Rafael, CA Commercial Real Estate Market

The continued growth of the San Rafael commercial real estate market is driven in large part by the San Francisco MSA, with Fortune 500 companies such as Wells Fargo, Charles Schwab, PG&E, and Gap, Inc., all headquartered here. The San Rafael office market benefits from the exceptional performance of the job market, the demand for industrial flex space is driven by high-tech, green energy and bio-technology companies, and the overall retail market in San Rafael benefits from Marin County's wealth.

According to a recent analysis by the local brokerage firm of Keegan & Coppin Real Estate, rental rates in Marin County and San Rafael across all asset classes are moving upward and vacancy rates are pushing downward, due to the expensiveness of commercial space in the San Francisco North Bay area. Demand for office and industrial space in San Rafael and the County continues to increase as both traditional, high-technology and bio-technology tenants seek out more price effective options.

While the vacancy rate of industrial property in Marin County hovers at around 3%, office vacancies are running closer to 17% due to the functional obsolescence of older product.
